Default SX4 all the way

The car is SX4 undoubtely.

It gave us the glimpse of something better than( my opinion) Honda City.
Overall the best buy in the segment to which it belongs.
Great ground cleareance and good ride quliaty are added points along with its great features.

Excellent value for money and fun to drive with excellent economy considering its wieght, tyres and aerodynamics.

Maruti discontinued the Baleno and launched the SX4. The sales of the SX4 speak for itself. People love the car for its looks, AS*S, and for its safety features. Dont think any car from the competition manages such a great package at this price. IMO, its already the car for 2008.

For me it is SX4. Simple reason, it broke the monopoly of Fiesta and City. If they launch a diesel this year. It will be another coup. Its a VFM.

If Magnum was also on the voting list, i would have voted for it. Reason same as above.

Nope affordability is the main reason, its just too expensive compared to what you could buy in the US! How many of us can afford to buy a US$35k car in the US for INR 35 lakhs here in India?

BMW 5 series is way better in all aspects compared to SX4. But SX4 is the winner ?!
Likewise, Spark costs 1/3 of SX4 and obviously equipment will be less.

I feel if the awards must be given for a category.
